Free School Meals & Uniform Grant

Parents can claim free school meals for their children if they are in receipt of the new Universal Credit, which is a single monthly payment for people in or out of work.  This has replaced the old criteria of Income-based Jobseekers’ Allowance, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support, Child Tax Credits etc.

If the child is in Year 6, then a School Uniform Voucher currently worth £105, can be claimed which can be used towards school uniform including PE uniform for comprehensive school.  This is a one-off payment for Year 7 pupils only.
